Writing is Self Care for me. Writing is part of who I am. Writing is how I express myself. Writing is how I process emotions. Writing is how I state my truth. Writing is life to me.
Thinking through my Self Care Sunday posts and reflecting on the topics I want to write about is a labor of love and a therapeutic process for me. I sometime write in my mind as I drive or as I walk and then I come home and let the words pour out onto the page. This process gives me an opportunity to reflect on my experiences from the last week and allows me space to sit with any emotions that may have surfaced. Writing is life to me.
My first love will always be poetry. I started writing poetry when I was 15 years old and now I can honestly say I’ve written over 400 poems. My early poetry is hand-written in journal books. The poetry I’ve written in recent years is in files on my MacBook and published by me on this website. My poetry is about life, desire, sex and self awareness but mostly I write about love – romantic love, self love, unconditional love. I write poetry about love. Writing is life to me.
In recent weeks, I’ve been sharing some of my older poetry from the Blue Love Poetry Collection. I’ve enjoyed looking through my older poetry. Each one I read reminds me of how I felt when I wrote it. It reminds me of that time of my life. It reminds me of that time and space we shared. It reminds me I am grateful for those experiences because they helped me grow into the woman I am today. I feels good to be authentic and true about who I am and what I feel. I write love. Writing is life to me.
I am taking a book writing course now. I am enjoying it. It’s been opening my mind to different ways to publish a book now. I was intimidated because I was focused on the traditional route of 400 pages, publishers and hardback sales. However, I’ve learned about self publishing and small publishing companies. Short books, under 100 pages or so, are actually selling well in Digital format. The biggest challenge I have is that I have a full time job that I will not be quitting any time soon and retirement isn’t for another nine years. So, having the time/energy to focus on book writing is proving challenging. For now, I am focusing on staying consistent with my Self Care Sunday Posts, building a following on Twitter under the Writing Holistically name and learning new ways to approach book writing. The reality is writing a book is a long term goal for me that I will work towards over time. Writing is life to me.
I take care of myself and honor my needs by writing.
Writing is life to me🦋
